Washington, July 13 (ANI): The California attorney general's office has accused Dr.
Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter of pop legend Michael Jackson, of incompetence and negligence, in a bid to permanently revoke his medical license.
Murray has already had his license suspended.
Suspended licenses can be renewed, but revoked licenses cannot.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the attorney general's office added the new allegations in an ongoing Medical Board inquiry last month, CBS News reported.
Murray's lawyer Valerie Wass said the doctor will contest the new charges.
The 59-year-old Murray was convicted and jailed in November after prosecutors said he abandoned medical judgment by complying with the pop star's requests for a surgical anesthetic to help him sleep. (ANI)
